Despite being a National Award winner and an actor par excellence, Parineeti Chopra has always been known as Priyanka Chopra’s cousin, especially when she started out. However, over a period of time Parineeti’s sheer hard work and determination has helped her gain the required recognition.
Since the time Pari has entered the industry there are constant comparisons between the two.
During media interactions when asked Parineeti if she feels bogged down by expectations anytime for being Priyanka Chopra's cousin, she swiftly replied, “Till my second film I was always defined as Priyanka's cousin Parineeti.
Only after my second film did I get my own identity. She is not only an inspiration to me but every single girl in the world. I see that only as a bonus in my life that she is a successful actress apart from being an amazing sister. She has been in the industry for 17 years before me so there can't be any comparisons.”
When asked her if she has plans for chasing Hollywood dreams much like di Priyanka, she affirmed, “Yes, I would love to. If I get a good script and a good role, why not? After all a film is a film in any language.”
Pari will be seen in MERI PYAARI BINDU which is set to hit the theaters this Friday.
